Research Triangle Park, N.C. – In response to the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Ike, which hit the Gulf Coast states as a Category 2 storm on Sept. 13, ISA has announced a hurricane relief fundraising program.
Dearborn, Mich. – The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) has launched the Lean Registry, a free community connection and collaboration space for Lean practitioners.
Partnering with the Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) and the Shingo Prize for Excellence in Manufacturing, the SME says it conceived of the registry in 2005 when creating its Lean certification program.
The Lean Registry allows users to post needs/expertise directly to their profile, create virtual groups and make safe connections more easily. Registrants can easily search through shared profiles to find who might match a specific need they have and then send an invitation to connect. Users control if or when to accept a connection and/or share contact information.
